We seek a postdoctoral researcher interested in advancing the methods used to extract cosmological measurements from the weak gravitational lensing and galaxy clustering signals in modern surveys, and in applying these methods to the Dark Energy Survey and Legacy Survey of Space and Time. The postdoc will work with Prof. Gary Bernstein, whose is currently pursuing principled approaches to recovering information lost to galaxy overlaps (blending) and non-Gaussian density fields. The University of Pennsylvania Physics and Astronomy Department has a strong program in cosmology,
and the postdoc would have many opportunities for collaborative work and access to data from DES, ACT, LSST, the Simons Observatory, and potentially other surveys as well. The UPenn Center for Particle Cosmology supports research at the interface of cosmology and fundamental physics.
Applicants should send a CV and a brief description of their research experience and interests to the email address below, and arrange for three letters of reference to be sent. All application materials should be received by December 20 for full consideration.
While postdoc positions are formally offered on an annual basis, it is our intention that the position lasts from three to five years, contingent on job performance and available funding.
The University of Pennsylvania is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
UPenn postdocs are provided with individual health insurance. Applicants interested in terms of coverage for family members should contact Professor Bernstein. Further policies on postdoctoral employment are detailed at https://almanac.upenn.edu/articles/of-record-policy-for-postdoctoral-tra...
